HyperX announces a new slate of colorful gaming peripherals
- The new HyperX Alloy Origins 60 keyboard is coming February 22, and a charging station for Xbox controllers is coming sometime in February.
- The HyperX Cloud II Wireless gaming headset, Cloud Revolver + 7.1 gaming headset, and Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse are all available worldwide now.
Update: January 12, 2021 (1:30 PM ET): HyperX has given us a firmer release date for the Chargeplay stand. Like the Allow Origins 60, it is also arriving around February 22-23.
Original article: January 11, 2021 (6:15 AM ET): Kingston-owned gaming peripheral maker HyperX came out today with a bunch of hardware announcements. Getting top billing are two brand new products, the HyperX Alloy Origins 60 mechanical gaming keyboard and HyperX ChargePlay Duo charging station for Xbox controllers. Additionally, the company announced the HyperX Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse, as well as the Cloud II Wireless and Cloud Revolver + 7.1 gaming headsets. Both of these products are now available globally after previously launching exclusively in the United States.
The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 is a compact mechanical gaming keyboard with low-travel keys, colored LED lights, and support for the HyperX NGenuity app for customizing lights and macro profiles. While it may look like this jettisons the arrow keys, they’ve actually been folded into alt, control, page, and “/?” keys, so you’ll have them if you need them. The keyboard will be available in the United States on February 22 for $99.99 through the HyperX store.
HyperX Alloy Origins 60 has won Android Authority‘s CES 2021 Top Picks Award for Best Gaming Accessory. Check out all the awards here.
The HyperX ChargePlay Duo offers a convenient method of charging up to two controllers for Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S, and comes with two 1,400mAh rechargeable battery packs for controllers. It will be available in the US sometime in February for $39.99 through the HyperX store.
Originally a US-only product, the HyperX Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse is now available everywhere for $49.99. The mouse features an ergonomic design, dust-proof switches, and integration with the HyperX NGenuity app for customizing DPI and the built-in RGB LED lights.
The HyperX Cloud II Wireless is a wireless gaming headset for PC and PlayStation 4 and 5. Our sister site SoundGuys actually reviewed it not too long ago, too. The headset offers great audio, virtual surround sound, and great battery life, all wrapped up in a comfortable build, and retails for $149.99, or an equivalent price worldwide.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver + 7.1 offers pretty much all the same features as the Cloud II, but it’s wired and uses a USB adapter to add 7.1 surround sound support instead of using HyperX NGenuity. It also goes for $149.99, or an equivalent price worldwide.
